Well, Randall, since your past responses suggest you
are a big wikipedia fan, check here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Core_2_duo

Its a 65bit processor. It will emulate 32bit.

You incur some penalty in installation size (disk space)
but since the bulk of an os is moving stuff around in memory
you will gain the use of 64bit registers to do this if you install
the 64bit kernel.
